Tenerife Carnival Dates for 2021

Last Night of Carnival in Santa Cruz

As both Santa Cruz and Puerto de la Cruz said goodbye to carnival for another year this weekend, here are the dates for the main carnivals in Tenerife in 2021.

Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival

UPDATE 23/07/2020: Carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife has been postponed to the second quarter of 2021 because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The city council will choose the final date in September 2020 and in consensus with the carnival groups. Three options are currently being considered: April, May or July 2021. New dates will be listed here.

Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival 2021 will take to the streets between Friday, 12 February 2021 and Sunday, 21 February 2021.  The main events will likely be:

  • Wednesday 10 February 2021 - Election of the Carnival Queen
  • Friday 12 February 2021 - Carnival Opening Parade
  • Tuesday 16 February 2021 - Carnival Main Parade
  • Wednesday 17 February 2021 - Burial of the Sardine

Los Gigantes Carnival

The start of carnival in Los Gigantes is usually on the Friday ten days after Shrove Tuesday. Therefore, using the any year schedule for Los Gigantes carnival, we calculate that their carnival should start on Friday 26 February 2021, with their main parade being held on Sunday 28 February 2021, but will update if we get any further information.

Los Cristianos Carnival

As ever, we won't even guess when Los Cristianos carnival will be held in 2021. We will update if or when any information becomes available from the authorities in Arona. 
  
If you wish to be informed when information about Los Cristianos Carnival 2021 becomes available, may I suggest that you subscribe to our email updates, or our news feedfollow our Facebook page, or our Twitter tweets, or all of them, or whichever is your preference, as whatever I post here will also be posted to all of those social media.
